DeSantis boots woke prosecutor Andrew Warren for failing to enforce state laws

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has suspended a George Soros-backed progressive prosecutor for failing to enforce state laws.

DeSantis said Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren — who oversees the Tampa Bay area — will be removed from his post immediately. The governor said he will ultimately seek his dismissal.

At a press conference Thursday, DeSantis insisted Warren had “publicly put himself above the law” while frustrating local deputies and citizens with a soft-on-crime approach.

DeSantis said Warren directed his office to let serious offenses slide and that he vowed not to enforce any current or future laws regarding abortion or gender-reassignment surgery on minors.

“We are not going to allow the pathogen that’s been around the country of ignoring the law, we are not going to allow that to get a foothold here in the state of Florida,” he said. “We are going to make sure our laws are enforced and no individual prosecutor puts himself above the law.”

@BohemianBoo "According to AAA, crude oil sank to the lowest price since January, 2002. The price of U.S. crude oil settled at $18.27 per barrel on Friday. Oil production fell 5% in the past two weeks. Refinery activity declined 23% in the past two weeks. Gasoline stocks are up nearly 10% in the past two weeks. Gasoline production declined nearly 50% in the past month

In Florida, on Sunday, the best gas deals could be found in Jacksonville, where gas was selling for an average of $1.66 per gallon; Punta Gorda, $1.69; and Panama City, $1.70.

The most expensive Sunshine State gasoline was being sold in West Palm Beach, averaging $1.99 a gallon; Gainesville, also $1.99 a gallon; and Fort Lauderdale, $1.94.

A month ago gas sold for an average of $2.12 per gallon in Florida. A year ago, the average price was $2.76."

I agree with Governor De Santis. However, the a$$hat, Andrew Warren, refuses to stop working, and is continuing to show up at his job. His spokesperson said, this morning, that he is an ELECTED official, and that the Governor can not remove him from office. However, the GOVERNOR of the State DOES have the power to suspend, remove or begin the process of impeachment for any official, elected or not, who refuses to obey the law.

Warren was removed illegally as he was a an elected official by the people NOT appointed! When will insanity stop! Governors can't just dismiss elected ppl just because he doesn't like them. State attorneys everywhere pick what cases they will or wont prosecute.
@PTCdresser57 "government should be run more like a business...
"Schools need to be run more like a business...
"Privatize it!

DeSantis needs to be our next president.
Nah, I'm too tired of looking for where you copy shit from.

@MistyCee Lets just call it "unnamed sources". That was good enough for CNN, NYT, and WAPO to spread propaganda.
@TexChik [quote]Then its some "gooooood shit" ![/quote]
Based on some of the responses, they must be smoking some really good shit. 😁

He so much wants to be a Trump wannabe. I can see many court battles over this one.
ReneeT · 61-69, M
@sunsporter1649 He had not grounds to take him from office. The laws he passed are never going to hold up if anyone takes them to court. And there is no way I can see him as presidential material

@ReneeT "By executive order stating the grounds for the suspension and filed with the Secretary of State, the Governor may suspend from office any elected or appointed municipal official for malfeasance, misfeasance, neglect of duty, habitual drunkenness, incompetence, or permanent inability to perform official duties."

@ReneeT Forgive me for asking but what state are you licensed to practice law in?
As pointed out in this thread, Florida law gives the Governor this power. Whether you like De Santis or not (and I suspect you don't), he has a distinguished legal background and is too smart to take an action which he cannot jstify on the law.
@BohemianBoo The child ass is at it again.
